Great judgment-haver Donald Trump delivered another very presidential interview Monday, telling Breitbart News that Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is “crazy” and “highly neurotic.” Hmm... neurotic. Schultz. Neurotic. Whatever could be going on here?

Trump, the favored candidate among politically engaged Nazis and white supremacists, told Breitbart’s Stephen Bannon on Sirius XM’s new conservative talk radio“Patriot” station that while Wasseman Schultz is a “terrible person,” she’s great at making deals. Canny, you might say. Sly. Good with money, maybe?

“You have this crazy Wasserman-Schultz, Debra Wasserman-Schultz,” Trump continued, “who’s in there — highly neurotic woman. This is a woman that is a terrible person! I watch her on television. And she is a terrible person. And in all fairness, she negotiated a great deal for Hillary, because they gave Hillary all softballs.”

“Every ball was a softball, and in fact, even the other candidates weren’t allowed to talk up against her,” Trump said. “How about — and by the way, he destroyed his campaign, [Bernie] Sanders. He totally destroyed his campaign.”

What... what could the subtext here possibly be? It’s a mystery! In any case, a DNC spokesperson told CNN, “The Republican front-runner’s misogynistic attacks are sadly representative of the GOP’s outdated approach to women and the issues that affect them and their families.”

Really outdated. Medieval, almost.
